Spinach, Bacon, & Smoked Gouda Quiche

This was the other half of my husband's birthday breakfast, along with sweet potato grits.  It may not seem like the manliest of dishes, but I have yet to meet a dude who doesn't like quiche (whether he admits it or not.)  Louis will happily tell you how much he loves it.  Egg pie with cheese and bacon?  What is there not to like?

Spinach, Bacon, & Smoked Gouda Quiche
1 9-in pie crust
2 C baby spinach, roughly chopped
4 slices thick bacon, cooked and chopped
8 large eggs
1/2 C milk
1/3 C shredded smoked gouda
salt and pepper

   Prick the bottom of the pie crust with a fork.  Pre-bake it at 350 deg F for 10 minutes.
   Add spinach, then bacon, and finally gouda to the pie shell.
   Mix eggs and milk, season with about 3/4 tsp salt and some freshly cracked black pepper.  Pour eggs over filling in pie crust.
   Bake at 350 deg F for 35-40 minutes, until it is set.  Let it rest for a few minutes before cutting.
   Serves 6.
